    Abstract

    The construction industry has been facing a paradigm shift to: increase productivity, efficiency, infrastructure value, quality and sustainability; and reduce life-cycle costs, lead times and duplications, via effective collaboration and communication of stakeholders in construction projects. The focus is therefore to create and re-use consistent digital information by the stakeholders throughout the life-cycle. This shift is based around BIM (Building Information Model). BIM as a life-cycle evaluation concept seeks to integrate processes throughout the entire life-cycle of a construction project in order to remedy the calcified processes, fragmentation, duplications and lead times, in order to provide client satisfaction, cost, time and quality related benefits to all involved in a construction project. More broadly, it can be described as the use of the ICT technologies to streamline business processes that are required by building infrastructure and its surroundings to provide a safer and more productive environment for its occupants, and to: assert the least possible environmental impact from its existence; and be more operationally efficient for its owners throughout the life-cycle of the building infrastructure
